This time of year is when cycling is at its most fun in South East England. The countryside is rich with colour as the plants unclench from winter. Longer weekend rides become far more enjoyable, especially if you live in a city. Weekday urban riding can hardly be described as either relaxing or inspiring so weekend rides need to be fun. Fortunately, in my part of London, I can be out of the city and drifting past bluebells, not bus shelters, in under half an hour.
